The Top Three Areas Small Businesses Need Trademark Support
1. BUSINESS NAME REGISTRATION
Entrepreneurs often think LLCs and DBA/FBN statements keep their names from being violated and that they are not violating others. This is not accurate. Setting up an LLC or a Doing Business As Statement does not equal trademark protection. The most prudent way to protect a name is to secure federal trademark registration. The government allows you to choose your business name, but they don’t check to see if your name is trademarked. As a business owner, you need to hire an attorney to find out if your company name infringes on someone else's trademark.

Brand protection is needed for most small businesses. Imagine this – you start a hot dog shop on the main drag of Hyannis} called “Tommy Tequila’s Good Eats” and you spend decades building your reputation. Your customers know your business and know your brand, but you don’t federally register your brand’s name. Then, you happen to go to Vegas for the weekend, and you find a year-old restaurant with the same exact name as your business. Without federal trademark protection, you are limited when it comes to enforcement and protection, meaning there’s little you could do to stop the Vegas pub from using your name. Another tricky scenario is how to deal with a cease-and-desist notice when your brand name is the same as one that was federally registered by another company prior to you using yours.
3. INFRINGEMENT STRATEGY.
If you have a brand, then you need a strategy on what to do if someone infringes your brand. There are many situations where someone might innocently infringe your brand.
